Motor City Madhouse: Going Gonzo with Ted Nugent by Martin Popoff
The first ever book about the outspoken American rocker, this is an updated version of Epic Ted Nugent, previously only published in North America that draws on interviews with the man himself. The Tedinator, Deadly Tedly, The Whackmaster or simply The Nuge...guitarin' Detroit gunslinger Ted Nugent goes by many names, but his riff-mad rock 'n' roll speaks for itself. This is the detailed story of the man's music (and emphatically not the rest of it), from the Amboy Dukes through to his bloodthirsty revival marked by the Craveman and Love Grenade albums - all men play on ten, indeed! But above else, it is the story of his classic, celebrated albums, namely Ted Nugent, Free For All, Cat Scratch Fever, Double Live Gonzo!, Weekend Warriors, State Of Shock, Scream Dream and Intensities In 10 Cities...all so much furious fun we hadda name 'em all. Telling the Tedly tale, offering all manner of fresh perspective in interviews with the author, is Ted himself, along with major players in the story such as Derek St. Holmes, Rob Grange, Cliff Davies, Lew Futterman, David Krebs and Tom Werman. Immerse yourself in Martin Popoff's celebrated record by record analysis and emerge out the other end of this thick yet fast-paced tome as a renewed soldier in Ted's army. Still alive and well...still raising hell!
